is jefferson's own work. >> franklin roosevelt had fireside chats. did he claim that he came up with that phrase? or was it the commentator that introduced in? butcher was on cbs, he was the guy who invented him. roosevelt wasn't prepared for it. robert trout was the one who introduced him for the fireside chat. but the word -- he wasn't sure at first. but again, a quick digression. but i've done some baseball writing. one of the things i found out is that when roosevelt started to write the fireside chats, he's a slightly aristocratic individual and he wants to talk to the american people. and he feels that he is coaching them out of the depression. and he starts using baseball heavily. and he said, you know, i just can't get the first base of this legislation where there is some member of the opposite party. so he would use these metaphors. it was then picked up by eisenhower. it is based on football. and that sort of becomes a big change in language. the president takes on a popular metaphor for explaining things. and it was explained in much more legislative, bureaucratic ty
inaugurals are terrible. i would ak cemeccept franklin roosevelt and in some sense, the president was echoing that when he talked about the shrinking few who do very well and the growing many who barely get by. but what is amazing is it was a bookend. and i think rick's right about this. it was a bookend to the reagan speech in 1980. it made progressive vision for america mainstream. it claimed the mainstream of america for progressive values. i think it's a very significant speech. >> well, rick, respond to that. i think it develops the point.-Ñ listen to what the president said about the middle class. take a look here, rick. >> we, the people, understand that our country cannot succeed when a shrinking few do very well when a growing many barely make it. we believe that america's prosperity must rest upon the broad shoulders of a rising middle class. >> well, the president gave a strong defense to entitlement. he alrejected the division the term by paul ryan with the makers and the takers. >> we do not believe that in this country, freedom is reserved for the lucky. or happiness for the fe
to make our government a place for what franklin roosevelt called bold, persistent experimentation, a government for our tomorrows, not our yesterdays. let us give this capital back to the people to whom it belongs. [applause] to renew america, we must meet challenges abroad as well as at home. there is no longer a clear division between what is foreign and what is domestic. the world economy, the world environment, the world aids crisis, the world arms race -- they affect us all. today, as an older order passes, the new world is more free but less stable. communism's collapse has called forth old animosities and new dangers. clearly, america must continue to lead the world we did so much to make. while america rebuilds at home, we will not shrink from the challenges nor fail to seize the opportunities of this new world. together with our friends and allies, we will work to shape change, lest it engulf us. when our vital interests are challenged or the will and conscience of the international community is defied, we will act, with peaceful diplomacy whenever possible, with force wh

. >> reporter: franklin delano roosevelt lifted people's spirits too. he used the first of his four inaugural addresses to start the healing of a nation badly broken from the great depression. >> the only thing we have to fear is fear itself. >> reporter: more than a generation later when nearly 2 million people crowded onto the national mall to see the swearing in of the first african-american president, it was a moment of national unity. but as this historian notes when the president gives his second inaugural address, the magic for the most part is lost. >> they are not as impressive not as compelling as first inaugural spices. >> don baer who was a speech righter for clinton says the most recent speeches whether by eisenhower, fdr, reagan clinton, or george w. bush don't soar to the same heights as they're measured against the reality of the first four years. >> well the first inaugural is sort of like a new baby right? there's so much expectation and potential. the second is like an adolescent, a teenager. we know it didn't quite turn out exactly the way we hoped.
on their heels. overreach is a common risk of presidents in their second term. classic example is franklin roosevelt wins the election, tries to change the supreme court. it all comes tumbling down. the president has to be conscious of that. divide republicans between those who believe the party has to try to rebuild itself, rebuild the national majority and those that are locked into a staunchly conservative view? >> even with the supreme court's decision, would you expect that it will still play a large role in the second term? >> it's absolutely critical for him to be able to make this work. his re-election means republicans in congress will not be able to repeal it. >> and next year is when we really start to feel the impact. >> absolutely. he is still in hand-to-hand combat with governors in particular in implementing it. a number of republican governors have refused to set up what's required, and the public component of expansion of coverage. there's lots of challenges of moving 30 million more people into an insurance-based system. so that could mean enormous implementation challeng

by franklin delanor roosevelt and a harbinger of his strength to come. that was the greatest inaugural of the 20th century. it brought back the american spirit at a dismal time, a time of deep economic depression and for many lost hopes. we have nothing to fear but fear itself remains a tier of american confidence. and later in that test of american strength, the second world war, people believed we would win out simply because fdr was president. for my generation it was john f. kennedy's zesty charge to the american people that became the statement of the best and brighter years of the 1960s. >> my fellow americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country. >> ronald reagan gave the first inaugural address from the west front of the capitol. in doing so issued a manifesto of the area's conservative tide. >> in this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem. >> but the most recent inaugural address was that given by barack obama. >> this is the price and the promise of citizen ship. this is the source
